Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
At last. British baritone Alan Opie confirms that he is, as his fans have long maintained, one of the few truly great Verdi baritones of his generation. From his first, majestic entrance, through to his compassionate, legato-laced redemption, Opie need fear no comparison with any rivals (OK, Tito Gobbi had that unforgettable bite in the voice, but in every other respect Opie is even his equal). Alongside him, Susan Patterson reaches grand, characterful heights as Abigail, while Alastair Miles is a granite-voiced Zachariah. Under David Parry's superb conducting, the whole set reeks of theatricality, verve and true Verdian style

Penguin Guide
one of the best in the long series promoted by Sir Peter Moores. Alan Opie is at his finest in the title-role...Other principals are are first rate...[The chorus] are outstanding, with David Parry drawing crisp, incisive performances from singers and orchestra, while Chandos sound is weighty and well balanced.
